Doesn’t get much more counterproductive than this:

Geithner’s testimony to Senate Finance panel

Jan 21 (Reuters) — GEITHNER ON U.S. DEFICIT, ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS: “It is absolutely critical to the efforts to get the economy back on track that we give the American people and investors around the world confidence that we’re going to have the ability and the will, working with the Congress, to get our fiscal position back down over the next five years to a sustainable position, but also that we’re willing to start to take on and find a consensus on a bipartisan basis for putting Social Security and Medicare on a more sustainable financial position longer term.

“I think we have to do both of those things together.”
